Back to our present topic. "Iniquity shall abound" is easy to realize as we see the abortion rate not only skyrocketing, but also becoming more favored by society. Why is this important? The second of the seven things God hates most is the shedding of innocent blood. What can be more innocent than a baby in the womb of his or her mother and where do you think would be the safest place for that child?
By the way, the first thing God hates is a proud look. You can see that being manifested in almost every sport today, and even in some parades. In some cases a proud look might be justified as an accomplishment achieved, but not when it involves a "look at me and how good I am" type attitude.
So what places in society do we see the love of many waxing cold? Well, just about everywhere. Road rage, gang violence, terrorism, schools, politics, neighbors, religions, racial issues, late night TV, and the list goes on. What does God say to His children through the guidelines He set down for us in His Word? I guess I could put it this way better than anything else. Where Jesus said that "the love of many shall wax cold," He is saying to those who are not of the world that "the love of His people will wax hot in these latter-days."
Whereby iniquity causes sickness, diseases, hatred, and a host of other bad things, love covers a multitude of sin and that frees us from sickness, diseases, hatred and the like. Consider this: "If you do not love your neighbor whom you can see, how can you love God whom you cannot see?" The devil wants everyone to hate, because he is the father of hate and lies. But you my friend, do not fall into his traps. Study the Word to find yourself approved unto God and spend time in prayer even if for a few minutes. After a while you will see this time as one filled with joy, peace and love towards your heavenly Father. The important thing is to start. God bless.
